I used Dina Wakley's paints and stencils on this page. Blackberry Violet was mixed into Texture Paste and applied to the page with a palette knife through the Basics stencil. I dragged Ranger's Texture Tool through the paste before removing the stencil. The tool has six plastic cards with different textures, I used texture tool 1. When the paste was dry, I rubbed a little Pearl paint on top. The Prize Ribbon was die cut from a Pocket Card and embellished with rub-ons.
The half circle was given the same treatment as the heart. I also outlined the shapes with a Fude pen. I stamped words from the All The Gals set here and there. The blocks where the paint was rubbed off make great homes for small words.
Paste was also applied through the Canvas stencil. I really like Dina's Silhouetted Women stamps and they are great for art journaling. Because my surface was so textured, with all the paste, I stamped the silhouette and the sentiment on tissue paper. Tear around the shapes, to prevent the edge of the tissue paper from showing. Apply a thin layer of gloss multi medium, carefully position the tissue paper onto the multi medium, and apply a second layer on top. The stars were die cut from silver Deco Sheets, and I placed this one as if she is balancing it on her finger.
The 'dance' word was added with the StencilGirl Uplifting Words stencil.
Pearl paint was applied here and there, and you can see the effect a little better on this photo. It gives a great pearlescent shine to areas of the page.
